Historically I was a member of AUUG now a member of LA

To me both organisations delivered / deliver the same value base.

AUUG introduced me to shared Unix based source,

LA picked up on the concept and delivered exelent series of conferences.

There are a number of LA players who feel the name should change
to better represent the changing LA goals,
I happen to believe LA came into existence because AUUG leadership
failed to move with the rapidly changing times.

I see AUUG as a parent of LA and as such part of our history.

Therefore I support a inclusive relationship to provide a home for AUUG 
and people.
